Director: Taika Waititi
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba
When Marvel hired Taika Waititi as director – best known for Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows – for the third instalment of the Thor story, we knew we were going to be in for something a little unorthodox. And he has really been allowed to deliver a full on comedy with blockbuster backdrop, rather than just another action movie.
Packed full of fun, this distinctive film boasts a great cast, including Chris Hemsworth back again as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as his cunning adoptive brother, Laki. Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, Thor finds himself in a race against time to save Asgardian civilisation.
Daft as a badger sandwich and twice as funny … the boldest, most outrageously fun film Marvel has yet produced.
funny, charming, dazzling, gorgeously designed, and full of actors you already like
